While construction is on hold at the site of the old Latham Hotel in Georgetown, the development team is pursuing a new design for a hotel with more rooms.

Thor Equities and architect Shalom Baranes have submitted a new design for the planned hotel at 3000 M Street NW (map) to DC's Historic Preservation Office.

Rather than a 10-story, 88-room hotel above three stories of retail, the proposed hotel would be eight stories and 256 rooms above a single story of retail. The current design was approved in 2016; the development team has cited difficulty securing retail tenants in recent years.

The hotel as proposed now would include amenity space on three below grade levels, along with roof decks on the third and sixth floors and on the penthouse level. Additional renderings are below.
